So, I'm new to knitting. I bought this goregous yarn at The Shepardess yesterday and began knitting. I realize I don't have a concept of what's it called?...the color way?...I'm knitting knitting and only through 3 of the colors on the ball of yarn. I want more immediate gratification of color! I'm thinking I'll unroll the ball of yarn and make two balls, then knit 2 stands at once...Either way, it's gorgeous yarn and I'm going to add it to a wet-felting project I have in mind.


  1. I love the slowness of the color in this piece. So many times, spaced dyed yarn turns into stripes. I once knit a sweater with a spider placed right in the middle of each piece. There was no way to get rid of the spider without ending and beginning the yarn on each edge. I ripped and re-knit it several times and finally gave up on it.

    Your piece is lovely. Be careful what you wish for. You might get spiders.

  2. We're on the same time-line! I am starting to knit as well, and bought some variegated yarn (natch!) at Michael's to practice with. Knit stitch only so far, but I have a friend who is going to tutor me a little... we'll have to compare notes!


Thanks so much for visiting!
